Poetry Study

We are about to begin our study of poetry. Our hope is that students will be immersed in reading, writing, and reciting poetry. Can you please check your bookshelves at home and see if you have any volumes of poetry that you'd be willing to share with our class for the coming weeks? Many thanks in advance! Enjoy these poems about poems written by Charles Ghigna.

Spider WebA Poem Is A Spider Web

A poem is a spider web
Spun with words of wonder,
Woven lace held in place
By whispers made of thunder.
Question MarksWhat's A Poem?

A whisper,
a shout,
thoughts turned
inside out.

A laugh,
a sigh,
an echo
passing by.

A rhythm,
a rhyme,
a moment
caught in time.

A moon,
a star,
a glimpse
of who you are.
